Question about Garden

1 Answer

The blades will not turn on even though the handle is in the on position and the pulley works. We think the problem is in the metal housing that also connects to the motor in some way. I was cutting grass, it kept slipping out to turn the blades off, I switched it on again, finally after several times of this the blades just stopped working all together. The mower itself works good though. What could have happened? What should I try?

Is this a manual or electric PTO? Check the belts and tensioner springs.

My pto is on all the time on my Toro zero turn. Blades are engaged when I start the engine even though the switch is in the off position? What would cause this?


Haven't had your particular problem, but my my blades would not turn when I pulled the PTO control knob. Turned out to be a bad PTO switch. Mechanic replaced the switch and it worked fine thereafter.

WHY WILL MY BLADE NOT WORK ON MY HUSQVARNA RIDE MOWER AFTER HITTING METAL BAR


Sounds like the large nut on top of the spindle may have loosened up or the splines on the pulley are chewed up. Turn the blade and try to hold the pulley on top. If the blade turns and the pulley doesnt, its one of the two things I just described.

I have an 18v Milwaukee bandsaw (model #2629-20) and the blade is constantly slipping off the wheels. I'm thinking it's an easy fix but not sure exactly what is causing the problem. Please hel


Possible causes:
- Tires: If the tire(s) on the front or rear pulleys are worn, torn or have chuncks out of them, the blade can slip off.
- Pulley(s) out of line: If either or both pulleys are out of alignment the blade will work it's way off. This could be caused by a worn pulley hub; a worn or broken pulley axel; or worn, broken or frozen bearings where the axels turn. On the drive pulley this could include the bearings on the drive shaft or the boss where the bearings fit into.
- Blade: If there are any kinks or slight bends in the metal they could cause the blade to work off the pulley.

The pull rope to start my bolens bl150 weed eater broke and can't get the new one too wind up


You need to pretension the spring before installing. Easier to do this before attaching the line, but there is a technique (at least for larger engines) for adjusting spring tension with the line still on. If you need I can describe it for you or tell you where on youtube I saw a guy do this. That video was for a snowblower engine, but the technique worked on my chipper. I see no reason why it would not work on a smaller two stroke, assuming there is nothing wacky about the configuration. I would think that a recoil starter for a two stroke and a four stroke should all use the same principle,.

My wiper sniper pull cord is broken, how do u change the pull cord?


Hi vanzedo, I will try to help you out. Because you don't specify the brand and model I will try to give you the Weed Eater brand that is manufactured by Poulan because it is the best known in my area and I hope it is well known in your area, but it is pretty well the same procedure for other brands.
To disassemble starter, detach starter housing from engine. Remove rope handle and allow rope to wind into starter. Unscrew pulley retainer or pulley retainer screw and remove rope pulley. Wear appropriate safety eye wear and gloves before detaching rewind spring from housing as spring may uncoil uncontrolled. Try to prevent spring from unwinding if possible, I use a flat piece of metal stiff enough not to bend, about 1" wide or less and try to put it between the spring and pulley, if I have the room to do it and prevent spring from uncoiling as it is quite a job to put it back in. (good luck with that one).
To assemble starter, lubricate center post of housing and spring side with light grease. Install rewind spring so coil windings are counterclockwise from outer end. Install proper size and length of rope. Assemble starter while passing rope through housing rope outlet and attach rope handle to rope. To place tension on starter rope, pull rope out of housing. Engage rope in notch on pulley and turn pulley counterclockwise to place tension on rewind spring. Hold pulley and disengage rope from pulley notch. Release pulley and allow rope to wind on pulley. Check starter operation. Rope handle should be held against housing by spring tension, but it must be possible to rotate pulley at least an additional 1/4 turn when rope is pulled out fully.
I hope this is helpful to you even if a little bit. Regards and good luck. Denis.

I have a problem whit my Casio W94HF. It just stop working. It show the time but you can't push any button until I reinstall the battery help me please :)


usually when the watch still works but you cannot make or change any settings and you do not see any reaction or change when you push a button, then it means that one of the buttons is stuck (as if permanently pushed) and the watch will not react to any button until the stuck button is released. Inside the watch there are metal fingers (contact blades) that the buttons actually push, and sometimes one of these finger blades can get stuck even though the button has returned outward. try (with tweasers) to pull on each button to see if it will move outward and allow the watch to start functioning again. If not, then the watch must be opened,and with a fine pin-like probe, each metal finger blade must be tested for proper movement and position. Also, when a battery is replaced, occasionally the housing is not seated correctly when the "movement" is replaced in the housing (if it was removed in the first place), when the cover is back in place, if there is a plastic or metal bezel ring, maybe the ring is not seated correctly. goodluck, Macgivor

Minka F602 - One of the two fans vibrates and makes noise.


I don't understand what you mean by "uneven spacing between the blade housing and the motor housing." If physical spacing is the cause, then you should be able to fix it by tweaking the blade housing into a new position or re-mounting it by drilling new mounting holes of your own and using sheet metal screws to secure it.

The fan inside might just be unbalanced though. Try tightening the large brown peg on the back of the fan head, and try tightening any other small screws that you see holding the fan head or cage in place. Heck, maybe even loosen everything, reposition it a little, then re-tighten.

Balancing the individual fan blades would be tricky because they spin at such a high RPM, but it could be done by using a strong epoxy to stick the correct amount of weight on the blades that need it. Figuring how much weight to put on which blades would be the hard part.

Pull cord broke


if you have not replaced cord you will need to do this,when you fit the cord turn the pulley 4 or 5 times full circle the same way as if it was pulling cord,then feed cord through pulley and out of housing to fit handle when this is done you can let pulley recoil and you should have correct tension,hope this helps
